 Post subject: WHEN TO STOP
PostPosted: Tue Oct 16, 2007 7:04 pm 
my d test is in just over 2 weeks. she will be practising some papers up until a week before the test, then i planned to stop everything. is this a good idea? should you let them clear their head or carry on? any advice from ex 11 plus mums/dads/tutors would be v grateful. :o

Hi

Our daughter has just taken the Bucks 11+. We just went over the question types she wasn't sure of the week before her first exam. It worked well for us.

Last year we were the same, last week fun stuff, going back over question types, talking about exam technique and building confidence. It seemed to work, the day before exam son commented "it's strange but I don't feel nervous". Day of exam nerves appeared but we talked about being apprehensive is good and nerves make you work faster. It worked for us.
Good luck.

My son did a mock test the Saturday before the test day (Saturday after that), using the same format as on the day with the same amount of timing allowed for breaks. After that, he just did a couple of papers during the week before the test but only 10 minute stuff. Nothing on the day before test day.

we did a couple of papers at the weekends before the test on the wednesday, concentrated on a type he wasn't totally confident of and went over some vocab. did nothing on the night before the tests.
